THEIVES AND UNSCRUPULOUS LIARS

1.0
Not recommended
Former EmployeeWorked in Distribution/sales.

What I dislike

Knowing how much the company is selling these jobs for (easily 3 to 4 times what they cost) and watching them take money from reps and installers to keep for themselves

Company Culture

The culture is all about worshiping the owner, they care nothing about employees, and will steal from them at any opportunity, with no explanation.

Work-Life Balance

These other reviews are a joke. There is no work life balance here. Let me say that again THERE IS NO WORK LIFE BALANCE HERE! They may as well just own you

Overall compensation for your work

Amazingly jobs you've been selling break bad on the back end. Explanation items came in high. Wont show invoices. Took over $1500 out of account. Theives and Liars. Would not want to be them on judgement day.

Teamwork

Should be called bribery, who gives the best gifts. The owner takes 5% off the top to the tune of $400,000, and you get a $1500 trip, he keeps the rest, yea, teamwork

Support from management

Management drank the koolaid or is under his spell, or has him backed in a corner, either way not a good scenerio.

Internal Communication

Internally they conspire how to take money from the reps, from admin being engaged to shop foreman on up

Freedom to work independently

Told what to do, when and how to do it. Um no.

Any kind of review like this is obviously disheartening. But what’s more troubling is that we know this person very well and have a tremendous amount of respect for her. She was with our company for several years and was a capable designer. Sadly, there were some unfortunate circumstances resulting in the Company’s decision to terminate her employment. This was not done hastily. In fact, the Company worked with her through her challenges for over a year. Nonetheless, we are sensitive that decisions like this can inflict a degree of hostility, depending on the person’s disposition and perspective.
As her former manager, we continue to remain open towards resolving her grievances on a personal level. Distressingly however, social media offers a platform for people to project hatred and other negative emotions in a gratuitous fashion at times. If it is simply her intent to conduct a smear campaign, then we leave it to the viewer to decide.

I love this place!!! If you like freedom to create your own paycheck and are willing to work then sky's the limit!!!

Teamwork

Again, top of the line. I've never been part of a company that feels like family to this extent. It's amazing.

Support from management

I already touched on this a little. And I cannot stress enough how awesome management is with Your Remodeling Guys. They are the best, from your direct supervisor to the very top, everyone cares!

Office / Work Environment

You get to meet new people daily, have great conversations and all of your co-workers want to see you succeed. It's awesome.

Challenging Work

You are on your feet a lot. It's helped me actually get in better shape while making more money. As far as challenging, the way I look at it, if you are willing to work hard then you will just end up happier because it ends up being more money in your pocket!

Internal Communication

Top notch, communication and continual motivation along with tips and know-how from top producers in the company are always willing to lend a hand.

Freedom to work independently

You set your own schedule!

Most Toxic Work Environment Ever

1.0
Not recommended
Former C-Suite / LeadershipWorked for this company until 2017.

What I like

The sales pitch on the company during recruitment was the best lie I've ever been told about a job and the working environment.

What I dislike

I gave 1 star because that's the lowest you can go. Negative stars weren't an option.
From start to finish everything you are told about this company is a lie. During recruitment you're promised tons and tons of money to be made. You're sold on this amazing bonus potential that in reality no one makes and can't realistically earn no matter how good they are. This is nothing but lies. No one makes near the money they are promised and told they have the "potential" to earn. This is on any level in the company because the recruiting strategy is the same all around. Big promises sold only to become lies. Not to mention bonus plans change to keep employees from being good at their job and actually earning the bonus. As soon as someone gets good at making money the owner changes the plan to line his own pockets further and to keep from paying out to the employees.
The owner is the most narcissistic person I've ever worked for. He loves to hear himself talk more than any person I've ever known. His "pep talks" and "motivational speeches" were the most verbally abusive one sided conversations I've ever witnessed. The goal was to beat you down so much then use fear to "motivate" employees to be and do better.
In regards to strategic planning for the company and departments, any strategy discussed in a conversation or meeting always took at least 1hr for every 5min conversation that could have been had because the owner loves hearing himself talk so much. Then after a complete waste of 55mins of listening to him talk about how great he is, you now have a "plan" for how to move forward only the very next day the plan is then changed and completely different. Nothing stays the same longer than 24hrs and the response is "We are a today business" like that explains how you just have to roll with his inability to stick with something. I lasted 4months with the company. Longer than most with the exception of the lifers. The lifers are the ones that have been beaten so long that they don't think they can do any better anywhere else. They are like mistreated animals that stick around for beatings because of that occasional treat they are given. Just enough to keep them around and pay them as little as possible while the owner continues to line his pockets.
Any Positive Reviews for YRG are Fake. Because of the negative reviews that this company was receiving in the past starting at the beginning of 2017 it was a mandated company strategy to make all employees write a positive review about the company and send it to an admin within the company for approval. This of course prevents anyone from being honest and saying anything other than positive things about the company for fear of being punished or even worse, fired. Upon approval from the admin the employees are then told to proceed with submitting the positive review on this site. Other parts of the strategy are for employees to use personal email addresses NOT company email addresses so that it couldn't be tracked back to the company trying to offset and create a better review score. The final part of the strategy has been to have only a few completed a month and sprinkle them out over time to make it less obvious that the company influenced these fake positive reviews.
My advice is to stay away. Don't go near this place.
